CTBL Building Closed for Parking Lot Construction

Beginning on May 6th, the Colorado Talking Book Library will be getting a new parking lot. For safety reasons during the construction, the CTBL building will be closed to the public. At this time, we are unsure as to when the building will reopen, but it could be as late as July 15th. Patrons will still be able to contact the library via email: or phone: 303-727-9277 or 1-800-685-2136 to order books, replacement players or make account adjustments. 

For patrons that come to the library to pick up books, please plan accordingly so that we have time to mail your books instead. Thank you for your understanding.

Spanish-language website

The National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS) has launched a Spanish-language website to help connect Spanish speakers to our large and growing collection of books and magazines in Spanish. Readers with low vision or blindness, or a disability that prevents them from using regular print materials, can get information about NLS, apply for service, and find resources and library materials in Spanish with ease.

The Spanish-language website is available at:
